Beaucastel tasting 1/2013

5. Orin Swift Zinfandel Blend Napa Valley the Prisoner (2005)

« Prev 5 of 5
Average price: $71.40 from 6 stores
Nose is very aromatic, leather, meat, black fruit, slightly candied with lovely smoke and herb nuances but in time this turns into an awesome poop-s-thon. Turn back the clock to beaucastel of days gone by all backed up with super clean fresh black fruit Big and slightly thick in the mouth, there is an early minty edge here followed by a palate full of tight but rich, muscular, meaty dark fruit filled with carob, earth and almost fudgy candied flavors. Finishing dry and dark with deep earthy notes hints of heat, pepperiness and some old woodiness this is still a bit tannic and firm in the mouth but at the same time it shows great precision and balance. A fabulous beaucastel. 94pts
